PHOENIX— Alan Faygenblat (D.O.B. 10/31/1978) was sentenced on February 14, 2017 to 12 months unsupervised probation and 160 hours of community restitution, for False Voter Registration, a class 1 misdemeanor.
In September of 2016, Faygenblat electronically filed a fraudulent voter registration application with the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office. Faygenblat falsely claimed he was currently a citizen of the United States and was born in New York. By providing false information Faygenblat was able to obtain a voter registration card. He then posted on social media the details of his fraudulent actions.
An investigation into his actions confirmed that Faygenblat was not a United States citizen, but rather a legal resident from Israel. Faygenblat admitted to investigators that he provided false information to obtain a voter registration card.
“This sentence is fitting based on the deceitful conduct of this defendant and his complete disregard for the American electoral system,” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “Actions like this will not be tolerated, they will be fully investigated and should serve as a warning for anyone brazen enough to brag about their criminal activities on social media.”
